Our Values

  • We believe that global engagement is essential to a distinguished university experience--that the plurality of perspectives it fosters catalyzes transformational research and collaborative activity, builds a sense of shared responsibility on campus, and is key to equipping the next generation of UT Tyler graduates with work and study skills that are adaptable anywhere in the world.   

    OIP staff express this commitment daily by approaching each interaction with a prospective student, visitor, or current student as an opportunity to shape a more culturally and intellectually diverse campus community.
